This summer, two teachers at Heritage have decided to take the opportunity to allow students to go on a comprehensive trip throughout Europe. The two teachers, Mrs. Cantwell from the Math Department and Ms. Peach from the Social Studies Department, have a strong enthusiasm for traveling, and want to give students an inclination to find the same. This will be Cantwell’s first time going on this trip, and Peach’s third time. The trip begins in Switzerland, and then goes through Northern Italy, Southern France, and the coast of Spain, led by the company EF Tours.
The trip is not sponsored by the school, and all students who decide to go will be traveling as private citizens with the teacher
leaders and the touring company.
“This trip has a lot of benefits for students who decide to do it. I think just being exposed to other countries and cultures is a really positive thing for students to experience, and in addition to that, I think it really helps give students who may be interested in studying abroad in college an opportunity to get a glimpse of what life in another country might be like in their future. I definitely encourage students to look into this trip because I have traveled with EF Tours before, and I think they provide a solid, comprehensive look at other countries while also making it more affordable than a lot of other tours,” says Cantwell.
This trip has also piqued the interest of many students in the Heritage community, one of which being Mitchell Allen ’19.
“I love going on vacations to different places, and Europe especially has always been one place I have really wanted to go. I think that an opportunity to go visit a country so far away with some of my friends and teachers is a really good way to go about this, and I think that going with a touring company as well will give me a more in-depth look at life in some of these countries,” says Allen.
All in all, this trip is undoubtedly a unique opportunity for anyone who chooses to take advantage of it, and can hold a lot of long-term benefits for students who are able to go.
